We are grateful to the Children’s Librarians at the Chappaqua Public Library for creating our Newsletter for Chappaqua Friends families. The Newsletter includes early childhood reading recommendations based on the themes we are exploring in our classes. We take cues from the interests of the children when developing our themes and incorporate them as we develop bring our curriculum to live and explore integrated subjects of Language Arts, Science and Math. Our current theme: Backyard Animals.
In this Newsletter, our Chappaqua Librarians fell in love with a new nonfiction squirrel book–Squirrels Leap, Squirrels Sleep—and decided to feature it in the newsletter and include a booklist of other backyard animals. In a nod to winter, they have also included a list of warm, cozy books. The squirrel book will be on display behind the Children’s Librarians’ desk. Please visit the Chappaqua Public Library Children’s Room and read this excellent book to your child!
